Background

The host nation was selected on May 31, 1926 with Uruguay winning the vote. This though spark convertiseary from the outset with the British teams pulling out and sparked a football competition for the British Empire Games which happened in Canada only two days after the World Cup ended. Despite the protest from the British teams, the competition still went as planned with FIFA declaring that it will be rotating the World Cups between Europe and the Americas.
